Purpose

The Colorado Supporting Healthy Teen Minds and Resiliency program provides grants for projects designed to build social-emotional skills and create supportive environments to improve resiliency for young people facing barriers to mental health. Projects should address behavioral health inequities and activities for prevention and early intervention with young people facing the greatest risks of anxiety, depression, suicide, and substance use, as well as changes within their environment to support resiliency.

The Colorado Health Foundation encourages applicants that include participants from the following populations:

  • Rural or frontier communities
  • Youth in or aging out of foster care
  • Youth from immigrant, refugee, or mixed-status families
  • Youth involved in the juvenile justice system

Preference will be given to programs that:

  • Adopt positive youth development practices, where work is strengths-based, inclusive, and engage youth in a meaningful way
  • Include multiple categories of social-emotional practice and skill and/or be working to incorporate more
  • Involve family members, caregivers, and supportive peer networks when done in a culturally responsive way
Eligibility

Eligible applicants include community-based nonprofit organizations or public agencies that work with youth who are low-income and have the ability to engage with LGBTQ youth and youth of color in safe, supportive, and culturally responsive environments.
